Medication Refill

  • The Chippewa Valley Free Clinic does fill medication requests.
  • If you are visiting the Clinic for the first time, your medications will be provided after you have been seen by a doctor or nurse practitioner (NP). Meeting with the doctor or NP and receiving your medications will both occur at your first visit.
  • If you are a patient already established at the Clinic, you can have your medications re-filled at either the Tuesday Medical Clinic or at all Thursday clinics. To help decrease your waiting time, please call the Clinic AT LEAST one day before picking up your meds (715-839-8477). For example, we strongly recommend that you call no later than noon on Monday if you plan to pick up your meds at the Tuesday afternoon clinic. Calling this far in advance will help our staff have your medications ready for you.

How do I make an appointment?

Patients who have been previously registered at the Clinic can call (715-839-8477) or stop in during Clinic hours to schedule an appointment. The Clinic is open to take your appointment phone call Monday – Thursday, 8:30 am to 12:00 noon. Patients who have NOT been previously registered at the Clinic are taken on a walk-in basis every Tuesday evening from 4-6 pm and on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays from 9-10 am. New patients will not be able to make appointments until they are registered patients. We encourage new patients to arrive at the beginning of registration as the clinic can fill up quickly.
